North London Millsite Cabin (NOLO)

History evolved

Just south of Breckenridge and West of Alma, the North London Mill site lies at the base of Mosquito Pass. Colorado Adventure Guides has partnered with the North London Mill Preservation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit, to help preserve Colorado’s mining heritage while developing an alternative model for outdoor recreation. In summers, join us for a History & Archaeology Workshop to learn about the area, check out the ripping ski terrain in winters, and meet the team helping make this new backcountry education center a reality. Home to around 1,000 residents and workers in the early 1900’s, the NoLo Mill and Mine participated in one of Colorado’s biggest gold strikes, which spanned 70 years and resulted in nearly one million ounces of gold. Eventually the mine closed during WWII, and the buildings were abandoned. Fast forward a few decades, and the NOLO Mill is now the site of a unique project designed to unite historical preservation with recreational and educational use. Renovation was completed in 2023 on the old mill office which became the first of several backcountry huts and education venues.
